Welcome to Gregslist of Chicago Area Software Companies

Gregslist Chicago is the up-to-date and curated list of software and SaaS companies located in the Chicago area in Illinois.

I’m Greg Head. My curated list of software companies in Arizona started as a personal volunteer project over three years ago when I lived in Chicago after a successful 30-year career in the software business. Gregslist became very popular there and was used by founders, tech execs, job seekers, investors, service providers and tech community leaders in Chicago.

I grew up in the Chicago area in Arlington Heights and visit often. I love Chicago!

Gregslist Chicago already has over 250 active, real Chicago-area software companies listed. There’s clearly something going on here in software and SaaS, even though the Chicago software community is not as visible as other tech hotspots. The Gregslist team is adding 20-30 real software companies to the list every month, so this Gregslist Chicago will have over 400 companies soon.

I’m bringing Gregslist to the Chicago area to help everyone here who is creating, innovating, and helping the growing software companies here.

Gregslist is now available in Salt Lake City, Chicago, and Dallas-Fort Worth. We are adding hundreds of companies every month. New Gregslist regions will be added in 2020, including Atlanta, Boston, San Diego, Denver, Austin and more.

Gregslist shines on a light on ALL software companies to connect talent, funding, connections, support, and attention to these crazy founders who are creating the next generation of successful software companies. There’s a lot going on in the software industry outside of Silicon Valley and outside the big, funded companies that we already hear about.
